Small Cinemas Malta (conference)
Filming Locations: The Fabric of Culture, Myth and Identity in Small Cinema
24–26 September 2015
Aimed at academics and media-industry professionals, this year’s conference revolves around the broad phenomenon of on-location shooting, but is interested in examining this cinematic concept through the lens of ‘smallness’. The conference organisers are aware that the notion of ‘smallness’ is peculiar, fluid, plural and relational; it can refer to the national context; the devices for cinema production; the status of authors or key figures; ethnic, religious, linguistic minorities, etc. etc.
The conference is interdisciplinary in its perspectives and methods. We welcome proposals field of film (including silent and small gauge cinema), as different disciplines and approaches.
